Target question: Is (x, y) in quadrant II?

Given: A circle with center (1, 0) and radius 2 lies in the coordinate plane
Let's sketch the circle along with some key points on the circle:
Image

From here, let's jump to . . . .

Statements 1 and 2 combined
There are several points on the circles that satisfy BOTH statements. Here are two cases:

Case a: The point lies slightly above and to the right of (-1,0).
Image
Notice that the x-coordinate is between -1 and 0, so we can be certain that |x| < 1
Likewise, the y-coordinate is slightly greater than 0, which means |y| < 1
In this case, the answer to the target question is YES, the point (x,y) IS in quadrant II

Case b: The point lies slightly below and to the right of (-1,0).
Image
Notice that the x-coordinate is between -1 and 0, so we can be certain that |x| < 1
Likewise, the y-coordinate is slightly less than 0, which means |y| < 1
In this case, the answer to the target question is NO, the point (x,y) is NOT in quadrant II

Since we cannot answer the target question with certainty, the combined statements are NOT SUFFICIENT

Answer: E

Cheers,
Brent

Now when we plot the points on the co ordinate plane

We get a circle with 1,0 as center and crossing the points -1,0 & 3,0

from 1
|y| < 1

-1< y < 1, this tells nothing about x

from 2
|x| < 1

-1<x < 1, this tells nothing about y

Even when we combine both the statements, it wont be sufficient to answer the question.

E
